    Your Local 2019 Bethlehem Holiday Gifting Guide

    Share the joy.


    The holidays are full of opportunities to show our appreciation to the ones we love. This year, as you hunt for the perfect present, we ask you to make every choice deliberate and every dollar count. How? By making your holiday gift list and hitting the streets of Bethlehem and the Lehigh Valley.


    Why shop local? It’s simple. You’ll find a beautiful selection of unique gifts, hand-selected by local merchants—real people who put thought and heart into their business, whom you can meet and get to know, and who value your support. And, money spent in our community stays in our community.

    Artists/Designer Layne Lyons and Derek Wallen, co-owner of Lehigh Valley Printing and Roasted, had an idea. Combining the capabilities of LVP and the community outreach of Roasted, with ties to the Lehigh Valley art community, they wanted to actively promote the idea of THINK LOCAL. Buy. Eat. Drink. Listen. Local. The result: a series of T-shirts designed by Layne, and two other local artists, Alexander Clare and Hailey Sibilia.


    Stay tuned to Roasted and LVP’s social channels to find out where you can pick up yours!
